I am cashing some air miles and taking a trip to Europe and M.E. later this month.
During the first part of my journey I'll be flying UA (Flight # 950) into BRU and transferig for flight to BUD (SN airlines). Transfer time is just over an hour. I have never been to BRU! Is that enough time? Am I required to go through customs in BRU (Schengen protocol etc.) or do my luggage go directly to BUD?
Also, I noticed the SN flight will be on an RJ100! wow! been years since I flew on them. Use to fly them frequently with NW back in the days and really enjoyed them. Funny how they seem to be viable to airlines in EU and not here in US!!

Could be a bit tight, but should be doable, as you have to get from the B gates (arriving from a non schengen country) to the A gates (schengen). Which means quite a walk via the tunnel and up/down two or three levels, and pass through passport control (at the end of the B concourse) & security (at end of the tunnel to the A concourse) to get into the schengen area gates on concourse A. You won't need to clear customs or pick up your baggage in Brussels, you will do that in Hungary.
B concourse is looking a bit worn out these days and in need of a bit of a facelift but the A concourse is quite a nice facility.
Flew both a SN RJ100 and a AF (well, cityjet) about a month ago when I was in Europe, I like 'em. Enjoy the flight as I don't think they'll be around for too many more years.
